  • Amazing oasis - heavenly!

    "What can we say... this was so perfect. This was the best vacation I've had since my honeymoon in Aruba. My wife, 2 year old daughter, and I stayed here for a week in October 2016. It was one of the best weeks ever. The house was clean, neat, and peaceful. The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in, both bathrooms were clean and spacious. The bedrooms were quiet and comfortable. Ceiling fans in all the rooms added to the comfort level. The backyard was incredible. The wall and privacy fence, nicely screened by tropical landscaping, make it feel as if you are swimming in a secluded tropical pool. The two waterfalls into the pool are a delightful element are added much to the ambiance. The pool itself was one of the most pleasant I've ever been in - warm, and inviting. I've never swum in a saltwater pool before, and it was fantastic. The pool was the perfect size for a family fun. Access to the beach was a short walk off Beach Ave. The beach was wonderful - never crowded, covered with shells for us to hunt. We went during the day, and then again after dinner to watch the sunset. Just be careful when you walk home along Gulf Dr - there is a narrow shoulder and the crosswalks aren't well lit. There were pool floats, towels, beach umbrellas, snorkels, a beach wagon, bicycles, a medium cooler, and beach toys in the garage. There was a highchair, and we left behind a toddler potty if anyone cares to use it. The owner David was very friendly and responsive as well. Plan on having to purchase most staples - we needed toilet paper and garbage bags beyond the normal perishables you might expect. (Maybe that's normal? In our limited rental experience, those things have been provided.) Publix is a short distance away, and has just about everything you will need. Honestly the only negative of any significance is that we had to leave. If we could move in here permanently, we would. Simply put, this week exceeded our expectations."

  • Nice place for a big group

    "The house was great - nice and big. We were a group of 12 women in our 30's, meeting for a reunion over Labor Day. Everybody has moved across the country by now, so we decided to meet for a weekend up north. There was plenty of room in the kitchen area for everybody to hang out and socialize while we made food together. The place is also pretty close to lots to do - within 20 minutes of a variety of choices (breweries, riding stable, town). It was a cooler weekend, so we didn't all go swimming, but note that it's weedy close to the dock (just as you'd expect though, most MN lakes have conservation ordinances preventing people from making beaches). It was nice though - the water was refreshing. Plus, we didn't run out of hot water even though we had that many women! I suppose the one knock I've got about it is the rental process. Sherry is very sweet, and helpful with lots of ideas to do around town or on the lake, but there were clearly some trust issues there. She just kept asking what we were going to be doing the whole time, and insisted on coming by to check us in even after I told her once we got there that it was a straightforward place, it looked great, no questions. She ended up coming to the house on Saturday afternoon (well into our stay) and the check in process was her showing me the stuff that's already clearly written on the contract, check-in document, and notes around the house. It came across as nosy, and it was a disruption to our vacation, so I'm sour about that. I assume she just wants to make sure people are having fun, but she inserted herself too strongly into our private time. She asked why we were getting together, what we were celebrating, what we were planning on doing.. a bunch of times. I assume she wasn't satisfied by my answers. She kept asking, which is where that snoopy feeling came from. It was like she wanted every detail, like she was trying to approve our plans or something strange. To end on a good note though, we all had a great time. We stuck around the house for the most part, made our own food, and really got a chance to relax and have fun by the lake. The open format of the kitchen/dining/living area was really nice. One night we went over to Zorbaz, which is the perfect raucous townie bar/restaurant you could ask for. Food, lots of space, impressive selection of local and MN beer on tap. Overall we enjoyed ourselves on our stay!"

  • Fantastic and very easy!

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Overall, my stay at Destin West was fantastic! The property was clean and organized well over all, and the management couldn't have been better. Julie made my stay extremely easy, and she was reliable to get a hold of. Nearly every part of my condo was spotless, but the floors could have used a quick mopping. That's the only improvement that could be made."

  • Quick stay

    "We have friends who recently bought in Wild Dunes and we wanted to spend a couple of days with them without being in the way so looked on VRBO and found this little gem. The owners were amazingly responsive, so nice and the condo has everything needed for an easy vacation."
